I was born and raised in Iran, a Land of contradictions where deserts and forests are a fewmiles apart; a Land of snow covered mountains and green valleys where palm trees and apple trees grow only a few miles apart from one another. The extraordinary geographical and historical conditions have deeply influenced my culture and people. Our traditions and ceremonies are intertwined with an exotic blend of symbolism and metaphoric language; which is visible in our literature, art and handicrafts.This is my heritage and a part of my being.As an artist, I have always been in search of a relationship between the mysterious and symbolic world of ideas and allegories which take place in the world of mythology, poetry and dreams.My art works are mainly based on my visual dream diaries which I have been keeping fora number of years now; where I express my inner self, dreams, memories and reflections.I work mainly in colour as I consider colour to be the soul of life and root of all existence.Ink and acrylics are my main mediums how ever; I am open to other new media such as monoprints, Photography and Photoshop.
